An Assessment of the Processing Load of Some Strategies and Representations for Subtraction Used by Teachers and Young Children.
Boulton-Lewis, Gillian M.
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v12 n4 p387-409 Dec 1993
Describes research which compared the processing loads of mathematical representations and strategies used by (n=3) teachers and (n=29) children aged 5-8 for interpreting subtraction operations represented in numerical form. Some representations and strategies appeared to impose an extra processing load which can interfere with conceptual learning. (Contains 43 references.) (MKR)
